    It ended, there was no arms race, which defined the cold war. This is with China and Russia now, it's different in my book but hasn't gotten as intense yet.

    First, the Iraq resolution was bi-partisan and the whole " lied about WMD, blood for oil and Halliburton " nonsense was just a huge Democrat false narrative pushed out by the media to ensnare stupid people.

    Plenty of Democrats believed Saddam had WMD and believed he was trying to expand his stockpile with nuclear capabilities and Halliburton's first " No Bid Contract" was actually given to them by Bill Clinton during his Kosovo Blue Dress diversion

    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
    --Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    --Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998



    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    -- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

    "There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
    -- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002


    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002


    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
    -- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002


    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002



    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    -- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003



    Giving " tax cuts to the rich " didn't cause any recession. Thats' so ridiculous.

    The recession was caused by the collapse of the Sub-prime housing bubble. A bubble that was built via Democrat policies in the 90's that forced lenders to lower their standards via the threat of DOJ action.

    Clinton also co-opted the GSE's and appointed his own corrupt Democrat buddies to their executive and chair positions. Franklin Raines was forced to leave Fannie Mae in 2004 after a SEC filing uncovered unprecedented amounts of corruption.

    2 years later Fannie Mae was fined 400 Million dollars by the SEC and in 2011, both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were the subject of a new SEC investigation that accused the two Democrat protected GSEs of hiding massive amounts of worthless debt.

    The CURRENT recession is just a continuation of the 2008 Financial crisis and has NOTHING to do with George Bush and EVERYTHING to do with the millions of idiots who equated platitudes and bumper sticker slogans with presidential qualifications in 2008 and in 2012.

    Easily entertained and manipulated voters elected a media creation instead of a qualified leader and we as a Country have been struggling ever since.

    The fact that YOU still blame Bush for our lousy economy 6 years in pretty much backs up my claims about the mentality of the average Obama voter and or Bush hater.
    Keep living in the bubble. NONE of those Dems were the 'decider' that invaded Iraq on false premises AND no one forced the Banksters into a world wide credit crisis and made Bush fight all 50 states on predatory lenders, ignore regulator warnings or push his 'home ownership society'; while ignoring standards hitting the ground!

    Regulators and policymakers enabled this process at virtually every turn. Part of the reason they failed to understand the housing bubble was willful ignorance: they bought into the argument that the market would equilibrate itself. In particular, financial actors and regulatory officials both believed that secondary and tertiary markets could effectively control risk through pricing.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Was George W Bush a good president?[W:439:621]Please stop this derailing. The topic is: Was George Bush a good president?

    That has nothing to do with this extended discussion of Clinton. Nor other posters. Take that to another thread.
